Origami Rabbit for Kids Step by Step
To make the craft, you will need a square piece of paper. It can be of any size, but you should keep in mind that the smaller the child, the larger piece of paper you should take. It’s easier for small kids to fold larger parts, which have much thinner folds.
Prepare and place a paper square of any color in front of you.
Connect the opposite corners and fold the square in half to form a triangle. Smooth down the fold from below. You can use a ruler.
Make a small pleat at the bottom part in the fold area. You can make it as wide as you want, but don’t make it too wide, since it will form origami rabbit’s ears.
Pull the right corner of the triangle and direct it to the upper one, fold and smooth down the fold.
Now, repeat the sequence with the left corner by connecting the tips at one point – these are the animal’s would-be ears. Sometimes, it’s easier to make this at once instead of performing sequential operations. In other words, you should raise both corners and determine the bottom middle line at once.
Fold a small corner at the bottom part.
Turn the paper over and fold the upper corner towards the ears, making efforts to do it as even as possible. The craft is almost complete.
The only thing left is to finish the look by drawing or sticking eyes, nose, smile with sharp teeth, and the middle parts of the ears. That’s all, the origami rabbit for kids is ready.
